Position Statement

Exploration geophysics has truly become a global affair. SEG has embraced this trend and has taken significant steps to adapt to this new envi- ronment. The Global Membership classification and the Regional Lecturer program are recent initiatives that spring to mind. During my travels around the world as part of my current job, I have witnessed firsthand the early impact of all these new policies: They are welcome and necessary for the future of our profession. At the same time, our industry is adopting new technologies at an accel- erated pace. Multicomponent, 4D, wide-azimuth marine acquisition, sub- sea EM, to name but a few, are making their way into the mainstream. Making sure that our membership at large keeps abreast of all these new developments is a critical mission of SEG. I am honored to be nominated for this position, and to be given the opportunity to give something back to the Society and its members. My main focus will be on continuing education and promoting our science in uni- versities around the world. I will also work on establishing closer ties with other societies to optimize our global presence.
